About

It's all about vintage!

I have a love for antique and vintage passed down to me from 2 generations. When I was a little girl, I was allowed to carefully pick up my aunt's vintage flapper style beaded purses, which were stored in an old trunk. (and I still have them) She died in 1914, and with those, I also treasure a picture of my grandfather as a doctor making house calls in his horse and buggy. Oh my goodness, I shouldn't talk about dates! But I love all my treasures from that period.

So now my favorite thing to do is hunt for vintage treasures at yard and estate sales. I always buy what I like, and I have an eye for the odd, even if I don't know what it is. I remember when I was first starting out, I bought a silverplate burner for a chafing dish, not knowing what it was. When I went to pay for it, the estate sale person chuckled saying, "what are you buying it for if you don't know what it is???" I don't know, but that's what I often do!

Anyway, some of the treasures DO find their way to my Etsy shop. I particularly like old wooden boxes, vintage purses, old postcards, and vintage vanity items. I wouldn't say I'm a girly girl, but I like all that stuff and more.

Hope you'll pull up a chair and browse awhile!
